Been swimming 5 months.
Concentration g on front crawl,bi-lateral breathing,stroke.
Did my first lake swim.
Bit of a shock really.
Couldn't breathe properly,getting head to stay down difficult.
Did 800 metres with head above water,did try several times.
Guess I panicked,not the best start.water murkey.
Been reading blogs,
Made loads of mistakes.
Didn't warm up properly.
Acclimatise my self.
Is there any advice anyone could give.
